The ease and flow of a good CDA performance is magical. I don't want to see any Arlecchinos out of breath. Watch the videos I'm posting. Watch Fava's DVD. Nothing is pushed, it all falls into balance. Strong physicality joined with breath and joy. Breath and joy. Magic words.
I saw a CDA-inspired performance at a renaissance faire this weekend. It left me wanting. I liked the performers, but they were not given the tools they needed to succeed. If you're reading this, chances are you are the choir to which I am proeaching. So get out there, do good work, and let audiences know what they are missing!
